Axcis is continuing to grow as more and more schools hear about us and start using our services. As a result, our South West & Wales office has a new consultant – Evie North, so if you’re seeking work (or staff) in the Swindon & Wiltshire areas, why not get in touch with Evie? Find out a bit more about her here.
We asked Evie to tell us about herself:
I have a degree in Theatre & Performance from Plymouth University and a PGCE in Primary Education. During my initial teacher training, I volunteered to be part of an inclusion project. As part of this, I received additional SEND training. And from it, I gained an incredible insight into supporting pupils with a range of complex needs including ASD, Down’s syndrome, visual impairment, dyslexia and cerebral palsy.
As a class teacher for four years, I adored the opportunity to attend and lead residential camps. I directed a lower school Christmas production and enjoyed running a series of after school clubs such as sock puppets and a drama club. My favourite subjects to teach are art and drama as pupils often surprise themselves in what they can achieve, which is lovely to see and be a part of.
In my third year of teaching, I worked at a school with an ASD and DLB resource base. This was a fantastic opportunity to support children with a range of needs and the chance to learn from many professionals within the SEND sector.
Seeing children flourish when they have a supportive team of staff around them has given me the drive to work closely with schools to help them find only the best employees for their SEND provisions.
I feel passionate about supporting children with SEND as children rarely come to school with a diagnosis so it’s up to staff to be sensitive and proactive in recognising their pupil’s needs.
In my spare time, I like to be active through hiking and attending exercise classes. I enjoy being creative and like to paint, make cards and knit. I’m an avid reader and relish challenging my friends to board games.
